Today’s printable was also suggested to me on my recommendation form not too long ago, and I’m really excited to see what you think! These date covers were first introduced in my full kits, and at first I was hesitant to use them. I didn’t think that it was necessary to cover every inch of a planner, but ever since I started with the new 2016 Happy Planners, I decided I didn’t like how the dates were in different colors than my spreads. I love how date covers can tie in spreads, and these multicolor ones can hopefully help with that! I originally started making these in solid colors, but they just looked so plain. I tried several patterns (polka dots, strips, chevrons), but I like these glitter ones way more! They match with everything, but they add more than just a plain blank background. In the next week, I will be releasing date dots and numbered text to use over these date covers. I didn’t make any for the Big Happy Planner mainly because I would only be able to use 2-3 columns, and it would more than double how many pages there were. If you would like, you can fill out the custom form and indicate that you’d like them for the BHP, and I can make a page with a few colors for that planner.

How to use printables:
Click here to see the sticker paper that I use. This was recommended on Facebook, and I would highly suggest you check this out! It’s a great price for a great value and quantity of sticker paper!
Ranked in order of Difficulty (1-easy, 4-hard)
- Silhouette: This is by far the easiest way and that would be to print out the stickers on a sheet of sticker paper, and then run it through a cutting machine like the Silhouette Cameo. I have preset the cut lines in the studio3 file, but I would recommend double checking to make sure the stickers are going to be cut the way you want them to.
- Box Cutter/ X-acto Knife: Print out the stickers on sticker sheets. Using a sharp cutter and a ruler, gently press against the paper to create a cut through only the top layer of the sticker sheet. Peel back to use. Get a parent’s help if you are young as this can be very dangerous!
- Scissors: Print stickers on sticker sheet and cut out the various shapes with a pair of scissors. Peel the backing off to use.
- Stickerless decorating: This is by far the most tedious, but it definitely works. It doesn’t look as nice or glossy as stickers do but its a way to decorate a planner without purchasing sticker paper. Check out my blog post on how to do it!
For each printable page will find at least 2 files: a studio3 (Silhouette) and a pdf. In the studio3 file, I have already set the cut lines for you, but you should definitely check before you print to make sure that everything is the way you want it. I tried to preset the cutlines and registration marks for all of them, but just in case I missed one, you’ll want to check and make sure before you print. I usually use default marks. Make sure that you have “cut edge” selected and that you have chosen the correct material. Sometimes I’ll forget to do this step when formatting page! Just an FYI, I don’t do offsets on my stickers (except for some decorative stickers), meaning that the Silhouette cuts out the outline of the shape. The reason for this is that I also have pdfs for people who don’t own Silhouettes who are cutting them by hand. If I do offsets, the boxes will be too big.
IMPORTANT When printing from a pdf, make sure that you have it set to a zoom of 100%, and ensure that you have selected PRINT ACTUAL SIZE instead of the default “shrink oversized pages” option. If you don’t do this, your stickers may be slightly smaller than I’ve sized them to be.
